Third Year going..

Happy Birthday to the Monkey… 

This blog turns 3 today! That makes it the longest time I've managed to do something consistently. And people say I have commitment problems. Pshhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Bet you never expected the cult following that resulted from it :p

  4. Well done SM. I was very upset when you announced you were quitting blogging, but you did the right thing and came back. May you blog till you are ninety and may I be around to read.

  5. So you only started blogging three months before I did???? Wow!

    Happy BlogBirthday :) is this age critical for your blog? Like, will it go through some self-defining identity crisis? hehe ;)

    It’ s great to have you back Sam. Here’s to a happy, prosperous, and exciting year to come for the Monkey :)
